Dear friends,

“The fact that love is beyond scientific investigation, yet is something we all feel: surely this alone is proof sufficient in itself that God exists!.”

–Swami Kriyananda

“Where do you get the power to love? You see, the problem with man is the ego-thought:​ ‘We do. We love. We hate. We feel joy. We feel sorrow.’ But the truth is that we are a part​ ​of a greater reality. We are a part of an infinite love. That’s how we can love–we don’t​ create anything. We can only give manifestation to that which exists.​…​It’s God’s power that gives us the ability to love.”    ​–from a 2004 talk by Swami Kriyananda

“THE SECRET OF LOVE IS…

creativity. Lovingly tend your relationship, like a garden. Keep it seeded with fresh interests, fresh ideas, that it grow always more beautiful. Weed it, lest the flower beds overrun with weeds of unconscious habits. For love to be ever new, it must be approached creatively, as an art. –from Secrets of Love, by Swami Kriyananda

LYRICS

What is love?
Is it only ours?
Or does love whisper in the flowers?
Surely we, children of this world,
Could not love by our own powers.

What is joy? Is it just a dream?
Or does joy laugh in every stream?
Are the clouds mindless after all?
Or is joy all Nature’s theme?

“God is dead”—so men say:
Can’t they see all life’s His play?
Not a church binds Him as its own.
Not a creed makes Him fully known.
Foolish we, if we limit Him:
Ev’ry atom is His throne.

What is love? Is it only ours?
Or does love whisper in the flowers?
Surely we, children of this world,
Could not love by our own powers.
What is love? What is love?
Is it love we touch in the flowers?
